Haddonfield police say 27-year-old Donald Hart, of Mantua, was arrested Tuesday in Cherry Hill.

Police say a suspect carrying a traffic cone and wearing a long yellow rain jacket, a yellow reflective vest with a black mask, a hooded sweatshirt and a white hardhat stole prescription drugs at gunpoint from the Rite Aid on June 16.

Police say he then carjacked a priest before abandoning the vehicle a block away.
